Immigrant center will take Metro State space


The Institute for New Americans, a nonprofit serving the city's refugee and immigrant communities, is moving into the City Place building at 730 Hennepin Ave. S.

The nonprofit will replace Metropolitan State University, which is moving in January a few blocks south to the Minneapolis Community and Technical College campus, 1501 Hennepin Ave. S.

The Institute for New Americans opened in 1991 and currently offers an adult basic education program for immigrants and refugees in Loring Park's Lincoln English Language School, 1730 Clifton Place.
